Remove Border

      Dear Support,

      I am loading a fancybox in Revolution Slider 5, and a Vimeo inside that Fancybox. All of this works and was set up like in your tutorial. What I don’t want is the black window/border around the vimeo pop up that usually appears on certain mobile phones/tablets (see attachment).

      Which option let’s me remove that? For desktop I set the dimensions to match the aspect ratio of the video (16:9, so 1080×608) and got rid of it that way, but on mobile devices it stretches to the top and bottom and looks ridiculous.

      Hoping you can help me remove this.

      Hi Julian, the dedicated Vimeo embed is designed to keep it’s aspect ratio when resized. Apparently this is not working in your case.

      Could you share a link to your site where I can see it live? It may be a conflict with other scripts on that page…

      Hey RavanH,

      thanks for the quick reply. The site is

      Did you manage to figure out why it is not working correctly in this instance?

      Hi Julian, it’s a very weird effect that I have not seen before. Hard to debug because with the browser Dev Toolbar it starts to behave differently. I’ve not been able to figure out what causes this 🙁

      Could you try another script version on Settings > Media? Maybe fancyBox2 version that has a slightly different way of calculating space, will behave correctly here.

      I also wonder if it is because of the fact that you use the class “fancybox” instead of the required class “fancybox-vimeo” or no class and letting the autodetect do its work… That is, if you followed instructions on

      But the API code snippet seems different, so maybe I should ask: which instructions did you follow? 🙂

      Hey RavanH,

      I actually did not do the original implementation, but this problem was dropped in my lap. The original developer did this years ago and I just tried to make sense of the problem. Anyway, I am happy to report that your tip to switch the class in Slider Revolution to “fancybox-vimeo” completely solved the issue!

      Thanks so much!

      (Not sure how to mark this as solved)
